A person exerts a tangential force of 36.1 N on the rim of a disk-shaped merry-go-round of radius 2.74 m and mass 167 kg. If the merry-go-round starts at rest, what is its angular speed after the person has rotated it through an angle of 60.0°?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

=> L=Iw => w = L/I where I=1/2mr^2

I just don't know where to plug in the tangential force and the angle.

Please help!
